    • Vickie,

      The beaters will bend and turn into a mass of “spaghetti” under the load of very thick doughs – or the gears will strip. That’s why the “old way” to do cookie dough was to change to the dough hook and the “new way” is to use the cookie paddles.


  1. I have the cookie paddles. Do I still start with the whisk attachments or use cookie paddles all the way through? I’ve read to use baking soda, not baking powder to avoid spreading? Do you have a video?

    • Elena,

      You should have no problem using the cookie paddles all the way through – remember to only use them with the metal whip drive.

      I really can’t comment on the baking soda vs baking powder thing as I’ve not tried it.

      I don’t have a video of this one – it was before I even thought of doing videos.


  2. I’m new to my Bosch mixer. I had Kitchenaid before. I’m finding using the cookies paddles to cream butter and sugar just make a clump around the middle that I have to scrape down to continue. Is this an all the time issue? It doesn’t seem to do as great of a job creaming as I thought it would. My recipe had one stick of butter and a small amount of sugar. My kitchenaid kept everything so clean and easy. I replaced it with the Bosch because I read such great reviews.

    • Kim,

      My experience is that there is too much scraping required in both the KA and the Bosch unless I’m using a Beater Blade in my KA.

      One of the differences I found between the KA and the Bosch is that when a recipe calls for “softened butter,” you really have to follow that in the Bosch. My experience is that we like to rush that softening process and the KA can handle harder butter better than the Bosch.

      Please persist with the Bosch. You’ll fall in love with it, I’m confident.
